DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/tbdg5p/u_s_market_for) has announced the addition of the "U.S. Market for Flavors" report to their offering.
It's no secret that today's grocery shoppers demand fresh, fast, and healthy foods. They also want flavor, and plenty of it. Bold and exotic flavors are in: sriracha is becoming a household word, tangy flavors like lime and tomatillo are cropping up in snacks and sauces, and unexpected pairings of herbs and spices, like vanilla-cardamom, or cilantro-basil are bolstering sauces or desserts.
While their taste preferences spiral to bold and adventurous, consumers are also highly health conscious. No longer looking to avoid simply salt, fat, or trans-fat, today's shoppers are also wary of long ingredients lists, names they can't pronounce, and artificial flavors, artificial flavor enhancers, and other synthetic additives. The transition of food products to recognizable and natural ingredients, including natural flavors and spices/herbs, presents a significant and fast-growing opportunity. Shortening ingredient lists and substituting artificial and unrecognizable ingredients with natural or recognizable ingredients continues to be a winning strategy for many packaged food manufacturers.
The continued transition to clean labels brings significant challenge and also significant opportunity to the flavors industry. Natural ingredients and natural food additives often impart their own, unexpected flavors and properties to foods. Natural flavors also tend to suffer from limited shelf stability.
